Push notifications

Question

Is anybody else receiving push notifications on their mobile informing them that a particular stock/commodity/index is up by x%?

 

I am not aware that I asked for this information and am finding it very irritating (as well as using my data allowance). 

 

I have opted in to push notifications for when positions I have set up are automatically opened or closed and for price alerts that I have set up for myself. 

 

I accept some people may welcome this service but not all of us do.  Anyone know how to turn this annoying new "advice service" off?!!

hi Janner - go to "my account" tab and select "settings" from the options in the window that displays. The second heading under "settings" is "notifications" - if you click there it brings up your preferences, just "un tick" the boxes you don't want. When finished, remember to click the green "set preferences" box

 

Happy days

Hi,

 

This is a new type of push notification we have been working on, which alerts you if a market in your watchlist has moved a certain threshold, with a maximum of one alert per week overall. We actually have disabled them for the moment as there were some functionality issues which we're currently making improvements to. You will always be able to manage your notification settings through the platform and I will pass on all your feedback comments to our team developing these notifications.

Hi,

Could someone give me a steer how you turn these notifications off on the IG iPhone app - I can't seem to locate the right screen on the latest app.  I just want notifications for alerts that I manually set and not random alerts (i.e. for major moves up or down on a market that may or may not be on one of my watchlists).


Thanks

I've the same problem, I receive these annoying alerts every time a certain market is up/down by a certain % and I want to be notified only when positions are automatically opened.

I asked for IG support and they answered to check all those settings I've already checked and disabled on both old/new platform, without success:

Account –› Settings –› Notifications

Calendar –› MacroEconomic events

 

I then asked if those alerts are related to the markets that are on my watchlist

and I got an other vague and pointless answer:

It's not possible to target alerts better.

 

So what's the point of those alerts?

The obvious answer at this point would be:

to encourage clients to operate more!

    • Hey @dmedin I've spoken to the marketing team about this. Although we have the footnote regarding the 6 hour time off, I do see where you're coming from so I will pass on the information. Luckily they sit very close to me!  Thanks for leaving your feedback
    • Bitcoin continues to follow my road map.  The 8800 level remains a vital resistance zone but right now a more important zone of support is coming up.  This is an area I highlighted previously as a make or break as I feel a break lower through this area (circa 7200, the Fib 62% level, or between 7000-7400) would suggest a full breakdown in the market and possibly signaling the end is nigh. The fundamentals could be construed as supporting this scenario if you believe the price action is more indicative of a highly speculative mania.  Certainly the % or IG traders Long suggests that everyone is eager for another massive rally, despite the technicals...  In order for crypto to supplant either Gold as a store of value or Fiat currency as a means of barter the speculation has to stop and cryptos like Bitcoin (well in fact for the ultimate vision to become reality there can be only one really) have to be essentially valueless (in the sense that it cannot be valued in USD).  Crypto has to resolve the split personality issue as well.  Is it a challenge to Gold or a challenge to Fiat?  Can it credibly be both?  If we get a major financial system crash in the near term I don't think any of the Cryptos will be sufficiently established to be either.  So that leaves speculation for now and such markets are not much different to other speculative financial markets so for now I am leaning towards a bounce off the bottom of the consolidation Triangle (maybe around the Fib 62%) and a final rally. If that occurs then the projection for a rally end is about 18000, which is lower than the previous ATH as around the Fib 88.6% level.  However that unclosed gap still lurks around 6000...  Interestingly the 8800 level is setting up to align with a break of the upper Triangle line.  If we do see a bounce then the next big make or break will be a test of that resistance zone and a breakout of that to the upside should herald a big rally phase.
